Using wide apertures to create beautiful wedding photography is so simple even a beginner can do it. A lens with a wide aperture, such as a 50mm 1.4 prime, can produce a gentle blur in the background allowing focus to remain on what it important in the shot.

Dynamic tension is a way of using the energy and movement available in various features of the frame to draw the eye out of the picture in contrasting directions. We’ve already looked at a variety of different lines that you can use in a photo to make it more interesting, but dynamic tension takes these lines and adds varying degrees of contrast between them, making them much more interesting.

If you’ve been following my basic composition technique tutorials, you’ll already know how effective the use of lines can be when composing a photo, and finishing off the lines section, we have perhaps the most useful; converging lines.

Frames are a great way of using a photographic element to lead the viewers eyes into the frame to focus them on a particular point, and the sense of repetition that they can provide produce depth and a path for the eyes to explore. A photo of a scene with a foreground feature makes for much more interesting build up to the main part of a photo and can, in some cases, carry equal weight to the rest of the photo.

Vertical lines come right after horizontal lines in importance and that’s for a single reason – the way our eyes view an image. Our eyes scan a photo from left to right horizontally and will pick up horizontal lines first, and because of this, vertical lines are excellent at complimenting horizontal lines with their perpendicular, stopping nature when they intersect. This is a great technique to adding tension into a photo.
